Some laboratories are equipped with powder characterization testers, but personnel do not always have the education training required to use test results to their full capability. This webinar will review bulk solids handling test equipment including shear cell testers, solids rheometers, wall friction and permeability testers, and other instruments that any facility that handles powders should have in its testing laboratory.
What you will learn:During this webinar, you will learn which bulk solids testing equipment provides the most useful information, how test results can be used to design systems for reliable flow, solve powder flow problems, or develop product specifications.
Who Should Attend:
- Process engineers
- Production engineers
- Quality control personnel
- R&D scientists and engineers
- Product line engineers
- Professionals in customer and technical service, process research and development, and equipment design
